My kit came today and I just finished assembling it. Looks great. The backlight isn't enabled though - not sure if this is something that needs to be enabled in software somehow or if it's defective.
both Fn + Up and Fn + Down can change backlight.
Please try it.
Thanks, I tried it but no luck. Note I'm using the keyboard with a Mac where Fn + Up and Fn + Down are both bound by default to some window management actions. Any other ideas?
Firmware update worked fine and I confirmed the Compile Date was updated to May 1st. I can reprogram the keyboard successfully with KBTools.exe but still no backlight. I tried moving the LED mode and the backlight increase/decrease to other keys but nothing on the board.
I think you may confuse the positive and negative of LED.
from this picture you'll see the electrodes the negative one is the larger of the two.
so please make sure that the negative is on the left.
Hm I soldered the LEDs with the longer lead inserted on the left, aligned with the "A" label on the switch housing. Based on your picture that appears correct. Any other tips for debugging?
can you take a picture and upload it?
and the longer pin must be on the right.
Is there some repo somewhere we can check for future firmware updates? Anywhere we can find instructions for KBTools?
Edit: http://www.zpzotech.com/ appears to be the place for this. Or at least as much of this as there is.
I updated firmware, and now whenever I hit any key it outputs a huge string of characters. any resolution for this?
Could you tell where are you buy Z70? I think maybe you buy it from someone else.
Because we sent some samples to people for review before first drop long time ago, but after that we redesigned PCB.
if so please send an email to me, then I'll send old firmware to you.
yes I bought it secondhand. I emailed you through your website also, but if you have another email I should respond to let me know.
Thanks for providing firmware! Perfect resolution, everything is working great!
